• Description


After the war, the Hurtigruten fleet had to be rebuilt, and new ships were needed. In 1956 the M/S Finnmarken was put into service on the Norwegian coast. She was the first ship of the "new line" of Hurtigruten with a superstructure at the stern (stern loader).

The M/S Finnmarken appeared as a prototype of a series of Hurtigruten ships which were put into service at the end of the 1950s and in the first half of the 60s. Furthermore, the M/S Ragnvald Jarl was built according to the same drawings as Finnmarken. They were sister ships, although they sailed for different shipping companies. Since 1993 the M/S Finnmarken is decommissioned and part of the Hurtigruten Museum in Stokmarknes.

For the development of the kit of the M/S Finnmarken original drawings of the Hamburg shipyard Blohm & Voss could be used, from which it was built and delivered in 1956. The model is reproduced correctly in scale 1:60. It has a wonderfully beautiful hull and comes with full decor! The superstructures can be opened to see the furnishings of the salons. In addition, the model can be illuminated with LEDs both internally and externally. The kit is designed for use with propulsion and remote control on the water, but also inspires as a stand model. The decor contains the lettering of the sister ships M/S Finnmarken, M/S Ragnvald Jarl and M/S Sjøkurs with the NRK logos "Summer Boat".

The kit includes an illustrated building instruction with text passages and parts list in English from modell-tec. This can be downloaded in the "Documents" tab. In addition, we enclose the German translation of the texts and parts list together with some supplementary information.
